Problems with external drive mounting in dual-boot system

I’m currently setting up my machine and haven’t been able to get mounting external USB drives correctly to my system.

Here’s my problem and what I have done:

  1. Using udiskie, external drives mount but in read-only mode.
  2. Classic mount didn’t work either.
  3. Repeated 1. and 2. with a combination of 5 USB-A/C ports and 3 different drives formatted in exfat and ntfs formats, always resulting in the same problem: “Read-only filesystem”.
  4. Finally, brute forced chown’ing the folder where the external drive was mounted and the drive itself, got the same outcome as 3.

Additional info:
mount >> log.txt && cat /etc/fstab >> log.txt && cat log.txt | eos-sendlog
